printTitan Tissue Tightening

Titan™ therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which utilizes an infrared light source to tighten flaccid, lax skin, and reserve the signs of aging without injury to the top layer of skin. The Titan™ heats the dermis to cause collagen contraction while preserving the epidermis through continuous cooling. In addition, Titan can stimulate long term collagen rebuilding that leaves patients with younger skin.

What Is The Treatment Like?

Titan™ therapy is considered a no-down-time procedure. The procedure involves some sensation of heat for a short period of time, but the risk to the patient and to the skin is minimal. The treatment can be performed to a variety of areas of the face, as well as other areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, and underarms. The procedure takes approximately 20 to 45 minutes depending on the area treated. Patients can usually return to their regular activities immediately.

What Are The Potential Benefits From This Procedure?

The most obvious benefit is tightening of the flaccid, lax skin. When the skin on the forehead and the area of the cheeks is treated, patients also get a lifting effect, which enhances the appearance of the eyes as well as the area of the jowls. Most patients see initial results in four to six weeks but then continued improvement over four to six months.
